Warhammer Play4Free Coming This Fall

Get your PCs ready; the Warhammer world will be free for all to conquer this fall. Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes, announced today at GamesCom, is Bioware’s first Play4Free title. Based on the hit PvP game Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, this new title is set to deliver the same fast-paced, competitive PvP arena gameplay — for free!

In this latest addition to the Warhammer saga, the focus is on the game's many heroes. Mixing and matching the various PvP playstyles of each character, you can switch between the heroes' arsenal on the fly to adapt you gameplay to each unique encounter. This flexibility extends to how the overall game is presented, with an innovative system that allows you to jump in and out of the game or settling down for marathon sessions.

You're not alone in this fight. Band together with other heroes in a war that features intense 18-player battles fought between three competing races. Added up, these new features are sure to appeal to both newcomers and established fans alike!

To sign up for the opportunity to gain early access to theclosed beta, visit the game's site. Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes will be available to download for free on PC in North America and Europe.
